#Buhari: What Should #Nigeria Expect from Buhari Version 2.0? A Different Man #Nigeriadecides


My Op-Ed article in the New York Times about how Buhari is likely to govern in his second stint in power.

In order to succeed, he must learn from what happened to him in 1985.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/09/opinion/can-nigerias-former-dictator-muhammadu-buhari-become-a-democrat.html
Excerpt:

In most countries, a 72-year-old retired general who once led a severe military dictatorship that imprisoned its opponents without trial, publicly executed convicts by firing squad, arrested journalists who criticized it, ran an Orwellian intelligence apparatus that bugged the phones of government ministers — a man whose overthrow three decades ago was welcomed with relief by his countrymen, and who lost three consecutive presidential elections in 12 years — would be considered unelectable.

#Nigeriadecides: Is #Buhari a Dictator or a Reformed Democrat?

My interview with National Public Radio’s Melissa Block regarding Buhari’s first sting in power as Nigeria’s military ruler between 1984-1985.

Some excerpts of what I told NPR:

A government in Nigeria today has to behave in a far more benevolent manner…the citizenry has evolved as well and are a lot more sophisticated; a lot more cognizant and aware of their rights, and would not tolerate some of the excesses that the military got away with during the decades of military rule.

Since Buhari wonlast weekend’s Nigerian election three big international media companies (BBC, CNN, and Al-Jazeera) have claimed to have secured the “first” interview with him.  All three of them are here on this page.

Getting on the wrong side of Obasanjo is the political equivalent of crossing a mafia don. You will pay.
